    what is the martial art that includes the cane? I can't seem to find what the name is. Perhaps I'm looking in the wrong places!

    The various FMA systems use canes.
    There is also a program by CaneMasters that looks good. (I have 1 of their canes)

    Savate uses la canne. But many people now offer instruction in the walking cane. Hwa Rang Do was relatively early on the scene with this (see the Ohara books).

    Speedy one should slow down and take in the sights and hopefully fully understand which Art maybe best for them. Like Bob said FMA uses them and I would recomend going into some different styles of schools to find the right one for you what part of the country are you in or the world and maybe we could suggest some good schools in the area, there are so many people here that can help a beginner find there calling in MA.

    One system I can think of that uses a cane is Hapkido.

    I've been thinking about getting one of their uber-canes. How does it hold up? I don't want to be afraid to scratch it!

    We spent most of tonight's FMA class doing the cane. As usual, the fact that it was a cane shifted the emphasis to it's hooked end...and it's length was ignored. People tend to forget the range advantage when they have a cane! They focus on the hook.

    Just about any art could be done with a cane, given the correct teaching principles and a good instructor. :)

    I realize that didn't help much. Try Canemasters or Hapkido. ;-)

    Lots of FMA stylists introduce cane work even if it isn't traditionally part of their system. Then there's Baritsu! See also this thread and the current issue of the Journal of Asian Martial Arts, which has an article on the walking cane (you can find it at Borders bookstores).123
